This gives you an opportunity to see campus in-person with one of our admission counselors and/or tour guides (current NC student). You can view availability and register here. Please read our health and safety guidelines thoroughly if you come to campus.

Transfer Information Sessions to get a first introduction to our school in person. This is a transfer-focused small group visit opportunity where you'll hear a brief presentation about NC, tour campus, and meet with an admission counselor. You can view availability and register here

Learn about your Admission Counselor:

Favorite thing about North Central:  North Central’s tight knit and supportive community will help you find your very own path to success. The faculty, staff, alumni network and student body work together to make sure every student feels capable of achieving their goals. The combination of the community, ideal location, and network from over 150 years of service are just a few things that make NCC great!

Words I use to describe North Central students: Active, Passionate, Resourceful, Family, Community, Innovative, Self-motivated!

Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor/staff member at North Central? As a First Generation College Graduate, I was very lost throughout the entirety of my college search process. I did not know what to expect, what questions to ask, or where to begin the process. I became passionate about being a higher education resource and wanted to work at a school I could truly support. I love helping students find home at NCC but more importantly I love helping students find the best next step for them. We are all here to help! 

Favorite Naperville restaurant: Jackson Avenue Pub! They have the best burgers! 

Favorite season in Naperville: I love fall! I love the beautiful trees and cross country season.

Advice to students: Please do not hesitate to ask questions! If you feel it is silly, I promise you I thought it, asked it, or wish I had asked it. The college search process can be challenging no matter your story or background. We are here to make finding your next steps easier.
